Italy’s [Jessica Rossi] dominated this event with a 75 possible in the qualifier, equaling the world record, and 24 targets in the final round, setting a world record for the final total. Rossi missed only her 17th clay in the final round. The other medals were decided in a three-way shoot-off among Slovakian [Zuzana Stefecková], the 2000 Olympic bronze medalist [Delphine Reau] of France, and San Marino’s [Alessandra Perilli], ranked #7 in the world coming into London 2012. All three tied with 93 targets hit with Perilli moving up from fifth place after qualifying with 71 clays. But she was the unlucky loser, missing her second shot in the medal shoot-off, as Stefeckova hit three targets for the silver, Reau winning her second bronze in the event.
The qualifying saw a three-way tie for sixth place which required a very long shoot-off. Spain’s [Fatima Galvez] won this with 12 hits, as Finland’s [Satu Makela-Nummela] lost out after hitting 11 targets, and Russian [Yelena Tkach] went after missing her seventh clay.
